Hi all first post here so go easy:)

Got a Napier parking fixed charge notice in post!!? My wife parked in a service area( staff parking a think) behind some shops,no ticket on windscreen? Just this through post, it happened on 21/08/17 it was observed from x to X? they have took afew photos of car parked up! I'm just wondering if I should pay this £50 fine or not? The reason for fine was failure to display valid permit,
Cheers

    Remove the minutes and seconds from your post; although they deny it, it's believed that Napier do this - specific seconds - to identify people who post about these charges on social media and forums.

    Is the place Jenger's Mead, where I seem to recall, Napier used to clamp cars before that was criminalised in 2012?

    It's not a fine. Napier might try a rubbish court claim, using BW Legal who are terrible at claims! We win 99% of the time here when people stick around and get help right to the hearing. No big deal, no risk, no CCJ.

    Whilst I detest what Napier do and they should be ashamed of rinsing the public because it isn't a real job in most people's eyes, this is a lesson NOT to park selfishly. A driver is best parking on street for a few minutes, not using some private land (and yes of course car parks are private land, it's not a special term, it just means not Council/public highway/land).

    You can stop to load & unload or run quick errands on street, in most places. No idea why people look for a private car park.

    I am NOT telling you to pay, don't be that person:

    It's just an IPC company so refer to the NEWBIES thread, one appeal NO to IAS. All explained already.

    Why are you asking? Not being funny, you can read the NEWBIES thread like everyone else!

    Do people (except teenagers) really say 'should of' these days? It's ''shouldn't have.''

  • I've read to newbie section and I'm still no wiser to what to do! Maybe I should have stuck in at school! And here's me hoping for some help but instead get shot down, ah well there was no harm in asking but next time I will use spell and grammer check so not to upset people who think they are superior in some way
    Regards

    Who is the Notice to Keeper addressed to - you or your wife? Can your wife not handle this if she is the registered keeper of the car?

    You really shouldn't bite at those who will try to help you - free of charge, and in their own time. You have no idea of how many cases we deal with in a day. Sometimes the pressure tells on us with the sheer volume of demand. For example today has been a relatively quiet one, yet there have been 50 different cases, all at different stages, requiring input from regulars (and there are only 7 or 8 of us) - some of those cases are requiring (demanding) immediate and urgent help, often with complex legal issues.

    You can come back when you've calmed down and you'll get help to help yourself, or you can pop yourself along to your local solicitor who will charge you around £300 per hour for advice and will do some of this stuff for you - provided he/she knows as much as we do here (which is highly unlikely).

    Your call.
    Please note, we are not a legal advice forum. I personally don't get involved in critiquing court case Defences/Witness Statements, so unable to help on that front. Please don't ask. .
    I provide only my personal opinion, it is not a legal opinion, it is simply a personal one. I am not a lawyer.
    Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.
